An internship in Spain not only gives you the unique opportunity to gain valuable international work experience and language skills that will make you a desirable job candidate, it also offers you the chance to explore the field you'd like to work in after graduating from university.
Professional Work Experience in Spain
Our combined work experience and language program promotes a high level of language acquisition, as you will be completely immersed in Spanish while interacting in a professional environment. The program has high eligibility requirements, entrance can be competitive and participants are expected to perform at a high level in the classroom and in work placements.
We work closely with you throughout your internship experience. From the time you first arrive, you will get together with our internship team every week to work on defining your areas of interest, developing your résumé and practicing job interviews.
A carefully organised program structured in two phases
- You will first take a minimum four week Intensive Spanish course at any don Quijote school or a two week Intensive Spanish + two week Intensive Business Spanish course at a don quijote school in Madrid, Salamanca or Barcelona. You are required to have an advanced level of Spanish (B2) after completing the language course to participate in the internship program.
- You will intern for a period of two months within the field you have chosen in Barcelona, Madrid, Seville or Salamanca.
Already have strong general Spanish skills? You may be more concerned about the business related language you'll need to know to interact in a professional situation while interning. You can combine two weeks of a General Spanish course with two weeks of a Business Intensive course to fulfill your Spanish course requirements before entering the internship placement period.
